October 22, 1773

1773 October 22 (Friday).  The young Gentlemen left us.  The workmen did not lodge here, and Except Mr. Harrington (being two of them now at work for Lt. Baker) did not come to dinner here.  Mrs. P________ not well.  At Eve Breck returned from Boston, says he saw the poor Criminal hanged.  The Crime was Burglary.  His name was Levi Ames.  O that others might take Warning!  Hear and fear, and do no more so wickedly.
